Now Available! Help Children Recognize and Prevent Sexual Abuse
Introducing I AM SAFE, the coloring book presenting ways to recognize and avoid childhood sexual abuse in a comforting and positive setting for kids, along with the parent/teacher/advocate companion, with statistics, questions, ideas and teaching tips for adults to use as they color along with the child or children they love.
I wish someone would have taken the time to share the information in I Am Safe with me when I was young. As a sexual abuse survivor, please order this book and share this information with all the children you know so we can do everything possible to protect our precious children.

I thought this book was very well done. It was written in an appropriate, comfortable and knowledgeable way. I would definitely recommend to friends and colleagues.
-Hannah Rinehart, MA, LPC, Counselor
I liked that it was a coloring book. It made it more fun to listen to my mom tell me about this stuff.
-Delilah, child, age 5
I would absolutely recommend this as a helpful tool for parents, school counselors and child advocates. This book provides just the right amount of information, with just the right wording to help guide children and adults into further discussion. The wording was great. I felt it was very reassuring.

Author of Mobility Matters: Stepping Out in Faith
From Kimberly Rae, the author of the best-selling series, Stolen Woman, which deals with the evils of human trafficking, it seems surprising to see coloring books listed among recently published books. The two books, entitled I Am Safe, were prepared to help younger children become aware of dangers a child may face and how to stay away from potentially dangerous situations, such as fire or accepting rides with strangers or sexual abuse.The format of a coloring book makes it easy for the child to talk about and remember these situations.
The second book is for parents, teachers or counselors and gives information that helps the adult know how to discuss each matter with the child. There is even information about the body language that would communicate problems the child might be afraid to reveal. This should help the adult identify serious problems that need to be addressed.
These books are an excellent way of helping children learn what to do if they experience possible problems that might remain hidden if they had never been aware of these situations.
Retired teacher and tutor for troubled children
This is a great resource to help children understand how to stay safe in a very non-frightening way.
…it’s very positive and if a child who was a victim was reading it, I think it would be very reassuring.
I feel like I paid more attention to my mom talking about this stuff because I was coloring pictures that went with what she was saying.
